    Hey there i have a vb6 program that connect to a sql server db and then add the data to a grid so i can view, addNew and edit.

    My Question is: is better to do this directly between sql server and vb6 or use xml(MSXML, SQL XML Query) between them?

    Thanks.) 3.0

    Hi CVDpr,

    XML files are mainly used by cross-platform applications.
    In your case, there's no need to add a XML layer between your VB6 program and the SQL server as VB6 and SQL server are both Microsoft products.
